"...the spiritual joy which comes from the mind into the body is in no way
corrupted by the communion with the body, but transforms the body and makes
it spiritual, because it then rejects all the evil appetites of the body; it
no longer drags the soul downwards, but is elevated together with it. Thus
it is that the whole man becomes spirit, as it is written: 'He who is born
of Spirit, is spirit.'"

St. Gregory Palamas.

Rejoice in the Lord, you righteous, And give thanks at the remembrance of
His holy name." Psalms 97:11-12
